Singapore launches first floating ‘battery'

It can power 600 four-room HDB flats a day.

The Energy Market Authority and Keppel Offshore & Marine have jointly awarded a research grant to a consortium led by Envision Digital International Pte Ltd to build Singapore’s first floating “battery”.

Called an Energy Storage System, the consortium, together with Keppel O&M, will deploy a 7.5 MW/7.5MWh lithium-ion battery ESS on Keppel’s Floating Living Lab that has the capacity to power 600 four-room flats from the Housing and Development Board.

This is part of the $10 million partnership between EMA and Keppel O&M to develop innovative energy solutions in the marine sector announced earlier in April this year.

The ESS will also explore the first-of-its-kind battery stacking solution that could potentially reduce the carbon footprint required for deployment by up to 40%.

The project is expected to be completed in 2023
